User Manual
Thank you for choosing this QTX MITO high power laser.
This high power effects laser offers a vast selection of patterns and grating effects including
the popular "3D", "3D thread" and "galaxy" displays. The high precision pattern themes can be
controlled via the 23 channel DMX-512 control. Intelligent time modulation mimics a two head
laser system allowing two different patterns to be displayed simultaneously. The laser is best
projected on to a flat surface, such as a wall or ceiling, or through smoke. An ideal addition to
any lighting rig or for use in permanent installations such as nightclubs or discos, where it can
produce a stunning laser display.

Fuse replacement:
In the event of fuse failure always ensure the mains is switched off and the IEC connection is
removed before opening the fuse cover. Remove the fuse from the fuse holder and replace
with a new one. Always used the correct fuse rating stated on the unit. Place the fuse cover
back in the keyed slot, ensuring you are placing it back the correct way. Do not force the
cover in the wrong way.
Maintenance:
There are no end-user serviceable parts within the unit. To maintain workable condition of the
unit, we are advice to remove collected dust from the unit on a regular basis. Before cleaning
or dusting, always ensure the mains power cable is removed from the unit.
Use a soft cloth, lightly dampened with water or mild detergent to wipe off the dust from the
casing. DO NOT use spray on the case as droplets may enter the unit through the front
aperture or ventilation and cause damage to electronics inside.
Remove the trapped dust from the ventilation holes of the unit with a vacuum cleaner with
brush attachment, a dust blower or a hand brush.
